Chris Lane, an Australian man who had recently accepted a scholarship to play baseball for East Central University in Oklahoma, was shot and killed by three Oklahoma teens Friday afternoon. According to the police, the teens did it simply because they were bored.
As the Kennewick High School class of 1971′s 40th reunion approached, an email was sent around relaying the sad news that seven of their 900 graduates had been murdered over years. The news was so shocking, the local paper published a story about it.
However, only six members of the class of ’71 had been murdered, and the seventh, Cheri Taylor, was very much alive.
